i had a non-start issue 2 weeks ago and y'all offered some good suggestions.
yes, there was water in the carbs, not the culprit.
yes, the valves were way off, didn't help then but she's been running pretty good for 2 weeks.
it was shitty electrical connections cured with a wire brush and dielectric grease.

however, i still suffer from what seems like a miss when under a load at certain throttle positions.

so, i'm back for more suggestions

she's a '95 Sportsman - mostly stock

if traveling up-hill at 1/2 throttle she'll start to miss, altering throttle position helps sometimes, more throttle or less will find an even firing sequence. but the problem will occasionally worsen with more throttle too.

i'm thinking timing advance or yet another shitty coil? what's up with the diodes, etc.
plugs are good, wires seem new (solid core)

anyone interested in absentee diagnostics?

mid throttle miss

Have you done a full throttle/chop plug check yet? Sounds like a mid range carb issue controlled by the slide cut away and needle clip position. Sounds a little lean. Try to experiment with the clip position by lowering the clip and raising the needle.

Thanks

That makes sense.
When studying the various jet, needle seat RPM ranges, the long needle slide position seemed responsible for the range of operation where I'm having trouble.

I'll adjust it tomorrow night.

Thanks again.

Hey 4Paws, did you make it to CRAP this weekend? I'm still overseas but I told MrsDonkeys to keep a lookout for you.

I came to a stop behind Thermos on the dusty trail. He had both of his gloved hands over his head. He was clapping. Just ahead of him, in the middle of a small stream was Keith. His bike was submerged, up to both cylinder heads, in brown water. The rear of the bike was down a bit deeper, nearly past the rear fender. The back tire was spinning, but he was going nowhere. With the rotating tire and frothing exhaust bubbles, the dark water roiled like an uninviting jacuzzi . I leaped from my bike in an instant. I knew what I had to. I knew I had to do it fast, too.

I grabbed my camera and took a picture.

You can read the rest and see a video at my blog. Yes, I know, you don't want to click on over there, but that's how I get paid. Thanks in advance.

Fellow beer snob and brewer here. Cans are great for camping. May I suggest any of the following available in cans:

Anything by Oskar Blues
Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout
Aviator's Devil's Tramping Grounds
Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat
Alchemist Heady Topper
Tampa's finest, Cigar City Brewing's Jai Alai
Hell or High Watermelon
